BBQ Plank Pears

This easy dessert of plank pears gently cooks the fruit with a light sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon on a plank that protects it from the heat and adds a subtle wood/smoke flavor.

The recipe uses cinnamon as the flavor to sprinkle over the plank pears but this can be substituted for off the shelf pumpkin spice or mixed spice to add a different twist.

Try experimenting with other fruits such as apples, peaches, and banana that are in season or available at your local market.

Ingredients

2 pears

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon sugar

Equipment

1 plank

Recipe Directions

  1. Clean the pears then slice carefully downwards to create 6 even thickness slices.

  2. Melt the butter.

  3. Lay all the slices out then brush with the butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar. Flip the pears then repeat.

  4. A cold or preheated plank may be used. Lay the pears out in a decorative fashion of your choice, such as in portion serves.

  5. Place in a closed BBQ or smoker pre-heated to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 35 minutes.
    A cooler temperature may be used, it will just take longer. If using a smoker at a low temperature, it may be necessary to wrap part way cooking otherwise they can absorb too much smoke flavor.

  6. Serve warm with fresh cream, mascarpone, or ice cream.
